Logitech QuickCam Express: Microphone not working

After completing all the steps of installation, I cannot get my new Logitech QuickCam Express's microphone to work. With the Audio Tuning Wizard, I can get to the step called "Adjust Microphone Volume", but then, when I test the volume with my voice, no sound is sent into the microphone, and I get the message called "Microphone Warning" stating that "little or no sound was detected from your microphone" etc. I bought two of these webcams, and neither will work. I'm pretty sure this problem is occuring because when the Audio Tuning Wizard has a box with a dropdown asking for the correct microphone, it only comes up with SoundMAX Digital Audio, which is the audio system in my laptop (and my laptop does not have a built in microphone), not the Logitech QuickCam Express one. So either how can I add a microphone to my audio settings, or how can I get the microphone to work? I have exactly same problem with Quickcam E1000. But 'best solution' below the reported problems simply just logs another problem instead of providing a solution! Help!!

    See section A in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.


    Also send this to your family
    and friends so they have there computer setup properly.



    Web Camera’s have to be
    setup on the program they are to be used with.
    Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to
    broadcast on messengers or Skype.





    Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for
    the Audio and Video to function properly.





    A. Skype Setup:





    After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download...
    ) set it up as follows:






    1. Go to Tools,
      then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone
      and Speakers
      to the computer Audio Card.

    2. Then
      click on the Video Settings.

    3. The
      camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.

    4. Then,
      on the bottom of the page click on Save.





    The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to
    see and her to you.





    B. Yahoo Setup:





    After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html
    ) set it up as follows:






    1. Go to
      Messenger at the top left and click on it.

    2. Next
      go down to Preferences and click on it.

    3. Next
      Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to
      the computer Audio Card.

    4. Next
      go to the Test Audio section and
      (in blue writing) click on
      “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the
      left window.
    Hope
    this helps. Bud

SOURCE: QuickCam mic doesn't work

I had this problem, and this seems to have worked for me:

1) Uninstall Logitech camera program and drivers from "Programs and Features" in the control panel.
2) Reboot computer
3) Go to http://www.logitech.com click on support, download the latest drivers installation for your device
4) Install this version (not the one that came on your CD!)
5) After the driver installs and Logitech thinks it's done, there was a Windows alert wanting to install the drivers. Important - tell it to locate and install them.
6) Proceed with sound test

This worked for me.. I was finally able to see my camera as a system microphone. The Logitech instructions don't mention anything about step 5, but it never worked properly for me until I did that.

QuickCam mic doesn't work


I read another post that said to go to Logitech itself for up-dates. This I did......downloaded all new drivers, etc. (the disc that comes with the cam must be out of date !). Then when that was done, I went back on Skype and where you do a 'voice test' I was able to this time around to "choose" my webcam - this was not coming up before at all. So in doing that it activated the mic on the webcam and all was OK. We seniors are supposed to be savvy with the forever changing world of electronic devices today! (LOL)

Logitech quick cam messenger


Hey guys,

Every review/spec I have read on this cam so far indicates that there is no built in microphone on the Quickcam Express. Here is one of those sites...

http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Logitech-Quickcam-Express-640x480-USB-W98-Logitech

If you still have your box that the camera came in, it should tell you for certain if there is a microphone in the product description on the back or side of the box.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you, and good luck.

If you have windows messenger follow below

Windows XP
Windows Messenger is a native Instant Messenger application to Windows XP. This application can be used to set the output device of your choice. In turn, this information will carry over to the MSN Messenger 7.5 application settings.
Launch Windows Messenger and execute the audio tuning wizard.
  1. Go to “Start”.
    Select “Run”.
    Type “msmsgs” and click “OK”.

  2. In theWindows Messenger, click “Tools” and select “Audio Tuning Wizard”.

Trying to get around buying a new webcam


When this happened to me with my web cams, Vista has always installed my cameras with the "Look 321P" driver, after I told it to "Search the 'net" for "Drivers". So try that it has worked for me on a number of occasions as I said.
